Description Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2010-03-04 12:02:45 UTC
CVE-2010-0562 (
  The sdump function in sdump.c in fetchmail 6.3.11, 6.3.12, and
  6.3.13, when running in verbose mode on platforms for which char is
  signed, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
  (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via an SSL
  X.509 certificate containing non-printable characters with the high
  bit set, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow during escaping.
